Abstract: This study investigated actively brazing Alumina-to-Alumina with Ag-Cu-Ti as the filler metal system and Alumina-to-Copper with Cu-Ti-Co as the filler-metal system. The research was conducted on four samples, two of which were alumina brazed to alumina (Samples 1 & 2), and the other two were alumina brazed to copper (Samples 3 & 4). The filler metal composition for each sample was as follows: Sample 1 consisted of Cu-96%, and Ti-4%; Sample 2 consisted of Ag-70%, Cu-26%, and Ti-4%; Sample 3 consisted of Cu-85%, Ti-10%, and Co-5%; and Sample 4 consisted of Cu-55%, Ti-40%, and Co-5%. The phase transformations between the filler and base metal of each brazed joint were studied using EDS, SEM, optical microscopy, and X-ray diffraction.

Abstract: Three Ti-6Al-4V plate materials produced by powder metallurgy technique, included pre-alloyed hydride-dehydride (HDH) plate rolled to 75% reduction in thickness, and two blended elemental (BE) powder plates rolled to 75% and 87% reduction were evaluated. The objective of this study was to determine differences in microstructure and toughness between the pre-alloyed HDH and BE Ti-6Al-4V materials processed to the same product form. Heat treatments were performed below the beta transus temperature at 982, 871, 760, and 732°C (1800, 1600, 1400, and 1350°F) for 1, 2, and 4 hours in order to determine differences in heat treating response, and above the beta transus at 1076°C (1970°F) to determine the transformation temperature. The samples were evaluated by optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Charpy impact testing was performed in order to determine differences in the energy absorbed during fracture. Pole figures (0002) of selected conditions were also performed in order to determine any differences in texture between the various conditions.
